Knee pain much worse sitting or in bed at night--behind the knee?

Knee pain much worse sitting or in bed at night--behind the knee?

Likely tendonitis: Pain that is worse at rest and at night may be tendonitis. The hamstring tendons attach behind the knee and if inflamed may be the cause of your pain. Stretching and anti-inflammatories are a good place to start. ...Read more

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two.

As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

Chondromalacia patel: this sounds like chondromalacia patella which is softening of the cartilage underneath your kneecap. Best treatment for this is to do exercises that strengthen your quadriceps muscles. You can discuss with your physician about this or after your evaluation if x-rays and other imaging looks okay you could have physical therapy help you work on a new program ...Read more

Kneecaps & alignment: Knee pain in younger people is often due to foot, knee, and hip alignment issues. Pain when the knee is bent comes from pressure of the kneecap into the femur. An alignment evaluation, orthotics, and a specific exercise program designed by a pt for you should help. Without an injury, a meniscus problem is unlikely. ...Read more
